Liberty junior guard/forward Megan Frazee has won the Choice Hotels Big South Women's Basketball Player of the Week award for the fifth time this season and the 11th time in her career.

Frazee (Xenia, Ohio) averaged 23.5 ppg, 9.5 rpg and 4.0 apg during Liberty's victories over Charleston Southern and High Point. She shot 57.7 percent (15-of-26) from the field and 94.4 percent (17-of-18) on free throws. Frazee also completed a career-long string of 21-straight made free throws, coming up one shy of the Liberty record.

Frazee opened the week with a 21-point, seven-assist, five-rebound outing against Charleston Southern in a 99-42 rout of the Lady Buccaneers at the Vines Center. She played only 20 minutes, yet was able to set a career high for assists.

The junior then led all players in both points (26) and rebounds (14) at High Point on Saturday. She shot 12-of-13 from the foul line in the contest and totaled 16 points and seven boards after halftime. Her efforts helped the Lady Flames hold off the Panthers' comeback attempts, as Liberty ran its winning streak to 13 games with a 78-68 victory. The triumph sealed at least a share of the Big South regular-season title for the Lady Flames.

Frazee leads the conference in both scoring (18.1 ppg) and free throw percentage (.877) and sits second in rebounding (9.0 rpg). She also ranks No. 14 nationally in free throw percentage.

The Buckeye State native is the first player to win five Big South Women's Basketball Player of the Week honors in a single season since former Liberty standout Katie Feenstra captured nine weekly awards in 2003-04. Frazee is tied with another former Lady Flame, Elena Kisseleva, for the second-most Big South Player of the Week awards in women's basketball history. Both players won 11 honors.
Liberty (24-2, 9-0 Big South) will play the middle contest of a three-game road swing Wednesday at Winthrop. If the Lady Flames win the match-up, scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip-off at the Winthrop Coliseum, they will clinch the outright Big South Conference regular-season crown.
